Off leash areas

A friendly reminder for all dog owners:

Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets and ensuring that their pets are in control at all times - on or off of a leash.

The City of Airdrie has six off-leash areas for dog owners and their dogs to enjoy:

Kings Heights (pictured below) 

1.  East Lake (small dogs): Fully fenced-in area designed for small dogs (under 30lbs ONLY). Parking is available on the west side of the enclosed area.

2.  Big Springs: Partially fenced in area located on the pathway south of the cemetery to Spring Haven Crescent. This area is fenced between the QEII Highway and runs along the backyard residential area.

Please note: Effective April 14, 2022 the south parking lot will be closed permanently, in order to make way for the QEII off-ramp. Click here for more information on this project.
